Forgiveness therapists in Burlington, Ontario ON, Canada CA
Counsellor/Therapist, MA, RP
Are you noticing that the burden of resentment or self-blame has become too difficult to carry? Do you find yourself stewing on events from the past - locked in painful waves of anger, regret, disappointment, and self-doubt? Are you looking for clarification and emotional freedom? Learning to cultivate forgiveness doesn't mean forgetting or denying the pain of your experience. It also doesn't mean having to say or do something for another person. It is all about doing something meaningful for you. It involves learning to give back to yourself what has been lost, reclaiming who you were before and nurturing self-forgiveness. I am here for you, holding a safe and supportive space. Together you and I will explore ways to hold yourself kindly, develop skills to manage the pain and weather the emotional storms, and begin to reconnect with what is essential for how you want to live your life now.

Forgiveness is a process. Someone who has wronged us can build intense anger, resentment, and bitterness. It can affect our relationship with self and others. Forgiveness does not mean reconciliation with the offender. It does not mean accepting or forgetting the wrongdoing. Let us discover together how we can deepen our understanding of forgiveness and what that means to you.

Forgiveness of self and others is really everything. This is not to say one is condoning the bad behaviour. Forgiveness and the path toward it can be the most transformative healing journey that can literally save a person's life.

Forgiveness is a process where someone who has been wronged chooses to let go of their resentment, and treat the wrongdoer with compassion. Forgiveness does not mean forgetting or condoning the wrongdoing, granting legal mercy, or reconciling a relationship. You can forgive a person while in no way believing that their actions were acceptable or justified. Clients who continue to hang on to painful emotions related to a mistreatment—even though they have every right to hold those emotions—can receive great benefit from forgiveness therapy. A number of positive outcomes, such as reductions in depression, resentment, and rumination, have been associated with forgiveness.

The ability to forgive is a central trait is helping people move past the negative emotions surrounding many family and relationship issues. While forgiveness is not required in all situations, for some, the issue of extending grace is paramount in helping escape the bondage of emotional upheaval and obsessive thinking.
